Reduced resolution and sync problems

I didn't read it well enough either, I was confusing dvfhigh with dvfxhigh,

But your last comment about the full list of modes was interesting, I
have been running smart dns proxy on my PC (
without this I get the full list of modes, I can see thet the bbc
might allow or stop access depending on whether they think that you
are in the UK or not, but I am puzzled why the modes list would be
restricted, but I guess the system at the bbc is more complicated than
I would have imagined.

Hopefully this will solve my problem,

Thanks for the help.
